Vision of Jerusalem with angels – pray for its peace!

In addition to Tony Puccio’s comment about the need to pray for Jerusalem in response to my Update post, he’s also blogged:

Jerusalem has been proclaimed by President Trump as the capital of Israel. This has caused much turmoil among the surrounding nations to put it mildly. What I’ve seen in a vision today, however, was a walled city and there was a lot of dust being kicked up without the city. On each of the […]

First Sunday of Advent and a personal foretaste of Jesus’ return

Yesterday, Sunday 3rd December, saw the celebration of the First Sunday of Advent 2017. It’s always highly nostalgic to me because of a life-changing dream in 1989 that brought a totally unexpected and radical encounter with Jesus Christ.

FIRST & SECOND ADVENTS

The First Advent was when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea 2,000 years ago. The four weeks leading into Christmas are designated within the church calendar as Advent, and start the church year.  In traditional churches the scriptural readings for the First Sunday in Advent are usually on the glorious return of Jesus Christ to rule and reign on earth, known as the Second Advent.

My encounter featured two highly personal aspects of my life; thereby validating the experience as real, not imaginary. Amazingly, both validations are directly related to the First and Second Advents and enhanced my interest in End-Times, by which I’d been figuratively grabbed by an Invisible Hand only a few years earlier.

Six years ago this week, soon after launching this blog, I posted details of the encounter – one that gave a personal foretaste of the Second Advent!

One aspect I haven’t previously referred to, however, now needs highlighting in view of current events I must blog about. So it’s important for you, my reader, to appreciate the wider grounds upon which I take my stand AND call fellow disciples of Christ to TAKE A STAND.:

THE VISITATION

The brief account On a Trapdoor into Hell – Jesus Swoops to the Rescue tells the full story.

My background was one of deep involvement in New Age, Gnostic and occultic notions with meditational and mystical practices. Although not a practitioner, I was nevertheless  aware of the principles of witchcraft. Those practices had led to some unusual ‘psychic’ dreams, but none whatsoever were like this one.

This dream’s sudden ‘gearing up’ into the supernatural reality of demonic and angelic activity and the appearance of Jesus Christ above the clouds and His fast descent towards me, startlingly made me conscience-stricken and realise the truth of judgement – in great dread, mine was about to happen NOW!  And because of my sins I was now about to be dropped right into Hell – so in terror I just had to hide from HIM!  (And I did…but!)

Later, I understand that terror had been ‘the fear of God’ brought through Holy Spirit in convicting me of my sinfulness (ie. wrongdoing) and, thus, preparing me to receive God’s grace (ie. undeserved favour).

However, only this weekend have I realised another scriptural relevance of that fear – and that I’D BEEN BLESSED WITH A FORETASTE OF THINGS TO COME! 

APOCALYPSE – THE SIXTH SEAL OPENS:

‘The kings of the earth, the great men, the rich, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in caves and in the rocks of the mountains and said to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great and day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (Rev6:15-17)

My reaction to that visitation from Jesus very closely matches the reactions described in Revelation chapter 6 to earth-and-heavens-shaking events that will lead into His return.  It could be said that, in addition to natural fear, the Spirit of Knowledge and of the Fear of the LORD (Isaiah 11:2) will come upon them.

So, I’ll be using that personal aspect as grounds for praying in a particular way for the conviction of sin and sincere repentance of reprobates who serve satan’s schemes.

Hence my taking note at the close of Emma Stark’s video of 24th November on the Lord’s preference for the kind of revival we should pray for.  ‘He said, “But Emma, I’d rather you ask Me for the revival of the holy, reverential fear of God.” And God said, “It is in that, that I can bring the extraordinary miracles.” And the Lord says that he is going to give back to his people right now…a godly capacity to fast; a godly capacity to pray; a godly capacity for greater holiness, because I believe that He’s saying to us,:

“Choose My move that is a holy, reverential, all-based response to Who I am, that will bring the greatest harvest, and the greatest salvation and the greatest miracles for a generation.”

Ezekiel’s vision of The Almighty’s flame-like glory

It was an immense delight soon after waking on this the last day of November 2017 that its meditation in Sanctuary returns to the first chapter of the Book of Ezekiel. Over the past four weeks David Strutt shared many gems from the OT prophets as a preparation for next month’s Advent season. It was instructive to dip into the relevant scriptures whenever possible, but I focused especially on those from Ezekiel and upon his life after receiving his Call 2,600 years ago!

After having blogged or read posts and comments on visions of holy fire, my eyes almost popped out upon reading…

Day 335 – November 30th

‘We cannot leave Ezekiel without going back to the beginning, to meditate a while on the vision that first put fire and fear and awe-struck love of God into his heart, soul and mind. He was by the River Chebar [exiled with the Hebrews in Chaldea/Babylonia] when a vision of heaven began. He saw things indescribable that are difficult to fully understand although our spirits rise with his as we hear of the beauty of the angelic forces and the servant beings. But there comes a point when even those pale into insignificance. [Am using New King James Version of Ezekiel 1:25-28 because it conveys a slightly fuller description than the New American Standard Bible.]:

‘A voice came from above the firmament that (was) over their heads; whenever they stood they let down their wings.

‘And above the firmament over their heads (was) the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne (was) a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it.

‘Also from the appearance of his waist and upward I saw, as it were, the colour of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it; and from the appearance of His waist and downward I saw, as it were, the appearance of fire with brightness all around.

‘Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so (was) the appearance of the brightness all around it. This (was) the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.’

Selah!

This is where language fails to convey and do justice to novel experience. It was hard for Ezekiel to describe this staggering vision, as we may gather from his repetitions of ‘as it were’, ‘the appearance of’ and ‘the likeness of’.  In other words, we should infer that his description is not to be regarded as being totally definitive of the Almighty.

The important lesson for the prophet-in-training was that God was present in Babylonia as well in Jerusalem.

It’s particularly noteworthy from the vision that the throne above the ‘heavens’ has an occupant described as being human-like but composed of, as well as being obscured by, the brilliance of fire.

Note also Hebrews 12: after stating in verse 26 that God has promised “Yet once more I shall shake not only the earth, but also heaven’ (per Haggai 2:6) and explaining its meaning, the chapter closes with its reason:  For our God is a consuming fire’.

Reminder of vision of Holy Fire falling

World In Fire by Danilo Rizzuti (Freedigitalphotos.net)

This month has seen a rapidly growing number of powerfully encouraging and uplifting words and visions for followers of the Lord Jesus to weigh, ponder and pray. Into that mix, especially regarding visions of holy fire, UK Prophetic Words has published this from 2009 brought by Susan O’Marra. Her final paragraph is noteworthy in connection with the state of panic in the devil’s camp that the Lord showed Emma Stark (here):

VISION OF THE RAIN OF FIRE

‘In the vision, I was looking at the world from a suspended position. I could see people and areas from a panoramic position and also at times, I saw things close up. The position varied as it did with the scenes and with the messages that I was given to understand by the experiences given to me.

‘I saw what looked to me like great fiery rain coming from heaven and it came in great drops or elongated streams. It was not like the natural rain that we know of, but it was like spiritually infused living molten lava, a real fire, but it was Living Spirit; the living fiery essence of the Father that was raining down towards the inhabitants below.

Renowned prophet sees devil’s domain in deep disarray

On Friday this video appeared on Emma Stark’s Facebook and subscribers to Glasgow Prophetic Centre’s Lion Bites were emailed ‘You Need To Hear This Word of The Lord’.

I’m grateful to UK Prophetic Words for publishing this transcript (colour-text RB):

‘God said some amazing things to me recently and I wanted you to be the first to know, so that you can be blessed and released to advance at this time.

‘The Lord said to me, “Do you want to see Satan?” And I thought, ‘What a peculiar question!’ and I said, “God, actually, do you know what – no thank you very much!” And God said, “But I’d like to show you Satan,” and I said, “But God, I’d really rather see you.” And He said to me, “Emma, you see Me all the time.”

‘He took me to a place where he lifted back the veil and, for the first time actually ever in my life, I saw Satan in the distance and what absolutely shocked me was how panicked he was! He was pacing the floor. He was so full of anxiety. He was behaving like a truly defeated foe. And I started to hear (or God let me hear) him muttering under his breath, and he was saying “My power is limited; my power is limited.” And he said Leviathan and Jezebel had gone to him – two of his great demonic generals – wanting more power, and he had no more power to give them because of the effectiveness of the prayers of the Saints. And I could hear him say that Leviathan’s teeth had been broken in warfare, and that that strongman was in the process of being overthrown and defeated. And there was such a sense of panic in the enemy camp, and also a sense that the enemy was on the cusp of an internal civil war because of the acknowledgement that they had run out of power.

‘Now you and I know as Christian believers, we don’t need to think in the morning, ‘Oh, do you know I’ve only got five prayers today; what am I going to use them on?’ But actually, Satan does need to think like that because he is a limited being. But at the moment, I believe God is saying to us that his camp is in a crisis like it has never been in for many years. And the sense of panic in Satan’s mind is because he is going to have to take his eye off the earth and off us to deal with his own in-house battles.

‘And I heard the Spirit of the Lord say that this is a time for great victory, where you can take back that which was lost. And the Lord says that Satan’s grip is so loose on some things that where there were some business deals which didn’t come through, some buildings you were supposed to own, some properties you were supposed to move into, some things that were supposed to happen, the Lord is saying that He is loosing over his church an anointing to catch up and to take ground, but also to ‘retake’ that which was already lost. And the Lord spoke the word “CATCH UP!” with such a force that it started to resonate in our thinking and we started to remember where we were supposed to be.

‘So I want to loose that blessing over you right now that God is saying, He is releasing a ‘catch-up’ grace; that the time that you have lost and the things that have been taken are going to come right back into your world right now.

‘And then the Lord started to speak to me about Brexit, in the middle of all of this. And the Lord said this: “You” (you collectively, like, all of us – family) “have prayed for a revival and awakening and reformation in the UK for so long.” And the Lord says, “I have heard the prayers for revival and awakening and reformation.” And the Lord said, “I couldn’t come as close as I wanted to, to the UK, because I had to resist her because she was proud.” And many of us know that, actually, if we were scoring the UK in a pride rating, we would probably score it quite high. And we know from the Word of God that God resists the proud, and we know from the word of God that Leviathan (go and read Job chapter 41 if you want and 42, if you want to read about Leviathan), Leviathan is the strongman demon over pride in the earth.

‘And I heard God say this: “I will allow a bad deal for the UK in BREXIT, and it will bring a humbleness to the nation. And in the humbleness it will be an answer to your prayers, because it will break Leviathan off you. And in the breaking of Leviathan”, the Lord says, “I will rush towards you with revival and awakening that you have prayed for.” And so the Lord says, Do not fear the bad deal, for I am in it, and I am disconnecting you to reconnect you.” And the Lord says that there will be a move of God on the back of the humbleness that is going to come to the UK.

‘I heard the Lord say to the prophets in the land and people of revelation … that He is about to catch you up; that you are going to see regionally, and not just locally, that actually – do you remember when John goes up in Revelation and he sees all the churches of the region? And God says, at this time He is going to raise his leaders and His prophetic people to start to be a voice of leadership in national crisis. But He is going to bless you to be caught up to see more than you’ve ever seen before.

‘But then I heard God, just this week, say something quite remarkable. He says: “What sort of revival do you want?” He said to me, “Emma, the church gets to choose.” And He said, “You can have a revival that’s very similar to what you have known before.” And I’m like, “Well that sounds quite good God.” Depth of presence – it felt like water of glory cascading. And then He said, “But Emma, I’d rather you ask Me for the revival of the holy, reverential fear of God.” And God said, “It is in that, that I can bring the extraordinary miracles.” And the Lord says that he is going to give back to his people right now, and some of you just need to put your hand up wherever you are, because He’s giving back to you a godly capacity to fast; a godly capacity to pray; a godly capacity for greater holiness, because I believe that He’s saying to us,

“Choose My move that is a holy, reverential, all-based response to Who I am, that will bring the greatest harvest, and the greatest salvation and the greatest miracles for a generation.”

‘So I want to say, be encouraged. The enemy is at his weakest. God is humbling a nation and He is rushing towards us. Be blessed.’

Selah!

A dream: the Lion is still roaring!

Over the ‘Pond’ and way beyond – in Tucson, Arizona – Tony Puccio posted this on Saturday in My Dreams and Visions 

‘I had a dream last night where I saw a lion seated in what I’ll call a regal pose looking outward.  Then I saw many, many people begin to throw spears and knives at the lion. I saw the lion lean to one side succumbing to his injuries – or so I thought – and dying.

‘However, the lion in the dream did not die but rather stood up on all fours, shook, like one would see a dog doing when wet, and the spears, knives, etc. that had pierced his body were expelled. Then I saw the lion begin to roar at those who had thrown the spears and knives trying to kill him and I watched as they became like dust and were no more.

‘Several things come to mind here one naturally being the monicar (sic) given to Jesus as the lion of Judah.

‘The seated lion, I believe, represents rule. The standing lion roaring represents judgement.

‘As I get further revelation from the Lord I will add to the post.’ (The Lion Still Roars)

Thank you Lord and to Tony, for this resonates strongly with an important message issued by Glasgow Prophetic Center on Friday, as in the next post

Exposure of sin, darkness and corruption as sign of God’s coming glory

One of many important words being received in these times, this from UK Prophetic Words reminds me of my musing last year about the increasing exposure of corruption and its connection to the foretold great shaking of everything (Hebrews 12:25-29):

SIN, DARKNESS AND CORRUPTION BEING EXPOSED IS THE SIGN OF THE COMING WAVE OF GOD’S GLORY

Two weeks ago I awoke in the morning with a clear picture in my mind. I was standing on the shore of one of our beautiful Pembrokeshire bays looking out to sea when suddenly the water in front of me began to recede rapidly and very quickly the whole sea in front of me out to the horizon was empty of water. I could see the whole of the bottom of the sea covered with rocks and other features which had been completely hidden.

I knew immediately that this was an indication of a coming tsunami wave and then the Lord began to speak to me:

“These days are like the time before a tsunami. The waters are drawing back, the seas are retreating and all the earth is being exposed. Sin, darkness, corruption and iniquity are being exposed as I draw back the waters that cover the earth. You will see an increasing exposure of all that has been hidden since the beginning of time. But it is the sign of the coming wave of my glory.

“I will sweep over the earth with the living waters of my Spirit and so shall my glory cover the earth even as the waters now cover it. It shall be as in the days of Noah but this time the flood shall be a flood of my light and truth and it shall sweep away the works of the enemy and I shall recover and restore that which belongs to me.

“Then shall the end come; then shall my Son return; then shall every knee bow before him; then shall I gather together all things in him and bring forth new heavens and a new earth in which my righteousness dwells. 

“Therefore, do not despair and do not be cast down but lift up your heads, lift up your eyes and see that which I am doing, for your redemption draws near. I do not wait until the last moment to help my people as some of you think. My timing is perfect, established from before time existed. What and when I move is according to my perfect will and purposes.

“Change your thinking about me and my ways. I do whatever I please for the sake of my Name. I am not the God of the last moment; I am the God of the present and perfect moment. Draw near to me and live with me in the present moment every day. This is your inheritance that has been purchased for you and freely given to you. This is your rightful place of rest that will keep you from fear and anxiety when you look at the situations around you, when you see evil everywhere and hear of wars and rumours of wars. Draw near to me and live in my peace,” says your God.

Vision of eagle – role of ‘air supremacy’ in the harvest of souls

Eagle-eyed by John Mark Long: courtesy http://www.propheticartists.com

A ‘God-incidence’ struck last Thursday in connection with Dr Sharon Stone’s November mentoring day, and with what two attendees of that meeting were writing about on the same day last week > the necessity of gaining ‘air supremacy’!

Having arrived from Shaftesbury with a couple of friends on this month’s first Saturday, Simon Baddeley and I greeted one other in Caffe Nero over coffees bought en-route to  the meeting. There, they sat in the row behind me and he and I took extra special note of what Sharon’s associate was teaching on how to bring God’s Kingdom into secular society. We never spoke about it. And neither of us would have prophesied, let alone guessed, that we’d both write about a special aspect of it on the very same day!!

So on the 9th I blogged about Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan, referred to America’s involvement and closed by citing how a prophet’s example of changing the spiritual atmosphere to release the Kingdom of God may affect international diplomacy. (See ‘Kingdom Presence & Prophecy’ section in Paws 4 Thought: Kingdom-related Events Since Lightning Strike on Mecca’s Grand Mosque.)  After telling how personal envoys of Donald Trump received prophetic words the speaker likened intercessory prayer and prophecy to the military strategy of ‘air supremacy’.

On the 9th Simon wrote as follows under this published heading:

‘AS YOU GAIN AIR SUPREMACY YOU WILL SEE THE HARVEST YOU HAVE LONGED FOR’

‘I have had this word for a couple of weeks but I heard (the speaker) use the same phrase that I’d heard the Lord say, which has prompted me to release the word.:

27 October 2017:
‘I heard the sound of wings beating; they are huge wings and I can feel the strength that is being exerted as they are causing a large eagle to take off from the ground. As it rose up I saw that there were scars on its ankles where it had been shackled.

‘I heard the Lord saying, “I am freeing my prophetic voices” and then heard him say,

“As you gain air supremacy you will see the harvest that you have longed for, for as you win the battle in the air you will win the battle on the ground. You have been wondering why the harvest hasn’t come in but it has been because you have not won the battle in the air; when this battle is won you will see harvest you long for.”

Simon Baddeley, 9th November 2017

Simon is on the leadership team at Father’s House Shaftesbury and associated with Dr Sharon Stone at Christian International Europe, Windsor, and a few years ago gave me an accurate prophetic word.

The symbolism of the eagle is especially significant in relation to prophecy. It featured prominently in my first encounter with it in church circles, as told in Why Write/blog? and as my cyber-friend and blogger Tony Puccio in Tucson, Arizona, can attest too. Hence, a copy of the above picture by John Mark Long is hanging in our lounge.

‘Wildfire’ baptism

Thank to UK Prophetic Words for this, reminding me of a word given to me during a visit to Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship – so what’s the Lord telling us through this?

THE ANGEL OF WILDFIRE BAPTISM

We had Duncan & Kate Smith, and Carol Arnott from Catch the Fire Ministries at our local Church with us for the weekend and on Saturday morning I had the following experience. I saw (in the physical) a man in the room, stood for around an hour with his eyes closed but gazing up in the direction of Heaven. I love to know what is going on in the Spirit and so I asked God if He would show me what was going on.

Immediately I got the sense of a MASSIVE Angel, maybe 15ft high standing directly before him with its arms out, surrounding him, protecting him and shielding him from everything going on around him in the room. In the very centre of the Angel’s arms was a Big Shower which was giving this man a 5-fold Baptism of Water, Spirit, Fire, Light and Glory. The man was being washed clean of everything that ever afflicted him and revived to be sent out into the World for God’s purposes.

I began drawing this and then Carol Arnott went up and began speaking about the Angel of Wildfire Baptism she has seen in her house. I believe this was the Angel I was seeing there in the room with us!

‘New era’ prophetic words for Scotland and UK

The Lord’s moving across Scotland is being picked up by prophetical folk and it reminds me, maybe 20 or more years ago, of a surprising subtle sensing of something.

From the windows of the prayer room at the top of Ellel Grange I had a good view over the countryside in all directions. I recall feeling a distinct difference between the spiritual atmosphere in the north and the others. I believed it could ‘blow’ and bring blessing from the Lord to the rest of the country.  As I was situated south of Lancaster then Scotland lay far over the northern horizon.

Many years later (2013) I heard Revd Dr Sharon Stone raise a ‘clarion call’ of prophetic words for 2014-16 to the nations of the United Kingdom, with Scotland in a prominent position as far as the Kingdom is concerned. Her profound words were re-visited upon the 2014 referendum for Scottish independence and the stunning 2015 general election.

Before reading and weighing the latest prophecies, let’s note these extracts from those words on Scotland’s identity and purpose in God (emphases mine):

  • “You have started a quantum momentum for the rest of the UK and Europe for you are no longer at a crossroads but you have crossed over. As with the Israelites when they crossed over from the desert to the Promised Land everything changed. A warrior mentality had to be restored, prophetic activity released…
  • Scotland you are not a mother nation like England but a father nation who fights for what is just. So prophetic warfare, praise and intercession will shift your land and help align England and other nations as well.

UPDATES:

1. THERE’S A FRESH WIND FROM HEAVEN BLOWING – FROM THE NORTH OF SCOTLAND DOWN THROUGH THE NATION. The Lord woke me up during the night, whilst in Scotland, and began to speak to me as I was hearing the howling winds outside.

This WIND will blow with such intensity that many will be urged to prayer and we will see the release of the Father’s plans in their personal circumstances and in our nation.

Many small HOPs (Houses of Prayer) will begin as this FRESH WIND blows out the old cobwebs and ushers in the NEW!

Patsy Southway, 3rd October (PICK Ministries)

2. WORD FOR SCOTLAND + UNITY NEVER SEEN BEFORE IN UK. – I’m increasingly aware of the spiritual warfare taking place over Scotland and of the eternal consequences thereof. For example, I see witchcraft on the increase yet on the run. I see it being beaten back, defeated and returning on its perpetrators – and that is the reason for the enemy’s ‘recruitment drive’ in that area. I hear the prayers from the Hebridean Revival echoing down the years. I see the Lord, delighted to hear them once again and urging today’s ‘Scottish Remnant’ to pray like that, with that urgency and fervour, once again.

The prayers of His faithful rise to Him as incense and that incense is filling His bowls. The time of outpouring is so close now. I see the bowls being tipped and just starting to spill out. The Lord is about to move. I believe it’s going to start on the mainland this time. Although the islands will not miss out, they will not be the starting point.

I believe it is starting North of the Moray Firth, but will spread South very quickly. I believe Holy Spirit will move through the Highlands and into Central and Southern Scotland very quickly. This coming move will not be slow but rather it will be one of Gods ‘suddenlies’.

First I see that Holy Spirit will move on the church, then on the ‘world’ exposing sin, especially corruption and evil, before moving on South again.

“The church in the whole of the UK is about to get stood on its head,” says the Lord, “while the rest of the world shall look on in awe and wonder.”

“In Scotland, the wounds of the past will be healed. The Blood of the battlefields will be forgiven and the stains removed! Yes, even the stains of Culloden and Bannockburn will be forgiven and healed. In England the sins of history will be repented of, forgiven, and healed.”

“Yes,” says the Lord, “There is a new start coming and it will bring a unity never before seen in the UK. The church, My Church, My Bride, shall lead the way with great repentance on both sides, great healing, and great joy! Watch, as I fulfil my promise and heal your land. If My people will turn from their wicked ways, repent and forgive the past, then I, the Lord God Almighty, will forgive them and heal your land! And the rejoicing, the freedom, the healing shall be such as will catch the attention of the world in awe and wonder!”

Chris Bennett, 10th October

3. THE ROAR OF REVIVAL. My supernatural waves have been released upon the land of your nations. They fall with great power, and their roar can be heard throughout the cities and towns. My waves will flood inland and touch every home and family.

My Roar will release the captives and their chains will fall away as they move into a season of quickening. The babes in faith will grow into supernatural warriors in a matter of days, weeks and months, rather than years. Each one will see hundreds and thousands bend the knee before my Kingdom Throne.

Revival will see the heart of My Church rise into its rightful place in the bosom of the communities that it serves. My bride has made herself ready, and she calls you to the banqueting table, come and join together as your name is written in the Book of Life.

Isaiah 51:14-16 – The cowering prisoners will soon be set free; they will not die in their dungeon, nor will they lack bread. For I am the Lord your God, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar — the Lord Almighty is his name. I have put my words in your mouth
and covered you with the shadow of my hand — I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth, and who say to Zion, ‘You are my people.’” (NIV)

Philippians 2:9-11 – Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (NIV)

Revelation 21:26-27 – The glory and honour of the nations will be brought into it.  Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life. (NIV)

Spiritual Warfare

Sifting

Thank you Tony for this helpful ‘gathering’ of facts relating to Jesus’ parable on the wheat and tares – tap/click link for previous on this basic New Testament aspect of eschatology (End-times teaching).

My Dreams and Visions

Before the process of harvesting the wheat the wheat any tares are separated. This is what I believe to be happening now.


The first step in the process of harvesting wheat is to loosen the chaff from the edible grain, which is called threshing. The way it was done was to spread the wheat onto a floor made from stone, or tamped earth and to beat it with a flail


Winnowing iswhere the loosened chaff is removed from the grain. The way of doing this is to throw the grain in the air, where the lighter chaff is blown off by even a decent breeze. The heavier grain falls back to the ground below.

The final step is ‘sifting’ and its purpose is toseparate. The sifting occurred once the wheat had been gathered in and winnowed. The wheat was gathered up off the floor…

Jarrod Cooper: a fresh prophetic vision of God’s glory invading society

Thank you to Suzanne Payne at UK Prophetic Words for the heads-up on Jarrod Cooper’s previous post Many Prophets are Prophesying a New Era!, and this extract from his 500: Are We At The Dawn of a New Era of Glory?

GLORY ARISING – A FRESH PROPHETIC VISION OF GOD’S GLORY INVADING EVERY SPHERE OF SOCIETY

This summer (2017) God has been speaking to me about a new era of outpouring that is growing in these coming decades, following the 500 year anniversary of the start of the Reformation.:

The Church will be filled with glory. A weighty sense of presence that has grown since the early 1900’s will begin to flood every corner of the Church – even the most stoic of church expressions will be found weeping at the wonder of His goodness again. Of course, there will be a backlash, that the coming glory is a figment of overly excited “Charismatic” imaginations, but the rising tide of glory and power will reach everyone who is thirsty – the coming move will be so obviously brought by the hand of heaven, that most of the Church will eventually open itself to new realms of power.

The Catholic and even other more “High” traditions will begin to be influenced powerfully by a new presence from heaven. The beauty of history and liturgy will blend with presence and glory, in ways many Pentecostals and Charismatics have thought impossible – and glory will rise upon the most historic of churches.

The Church will become more of a movement, and less of a club for members. She will pour out into the streets and the various strata of society, invading the very fabric of communities. She will meet in buildings large and small, facilitated by new types of church governmental structure, that are fluid, relational, releasing and non-bureaucratic.

Denominationalism will give way to Kingdom authority, led by servant apostles. Different streams or tribes in the Church will no longer be seen as competition, or lacking doctrinal accuracy. Instead, each tribe in the Kingdom will bring fresh emphasis, a strength that the whole Body of Christ needs. New authority structures will create Kingdom flow that lacks bureaucracy and releases the Saints to march across the land in power.

Church unity will flow as never before – such will be the harvest of souls. There will simply be too many people being saved to worry about the politics of pastoring. No longer will pastors fight over members – they will send each other members when their discipleship systems become overwhelmed by the sheer numbers.

Signs and wonders will become incredibly commonplace – even among children, and denominations formerly thought of as “dead”.

Indeed the dead will be raised, remarkable healings and miracles, transfigurations, men and women glowing at the presence of God. Some will be lifted off the ground, objects will move, the smoke of glory will fill streets, rooms, stadiums, parliaments. It will rain indoors – even oil will flow in miraculous ways. The wonders will cause worship to God and become so commonplace in certain locations, that they even seem to no longer fascinate the believers.

But these signs will fascinate the world and eventually be impossible to ignore, even by the most wary of media outlets.

POLITICS AND GOVERNMENT

God said “My glory will invade politics, carried on the shoulders of the ambassadors of heaven. Men and women who have met me in my glory, will be given the opportunity and mantle to stand for office and call my presence in.

Prayer meetings will run like rivers through parliament buildings. The EU will become engulfed in a war for its soul, as the Kingdom of light begins to penetrate even the darkest corners.”

The war for power in the boardrooms and cabinet rooms of the world will rage – but a new grace from my hand, that seems to melt even the greatest authorities will begin to invade meetings and conversations. While some have felt an “Elijah-like” confrontation will be the thing that turns men of power around, it will actually be a release of softening grace that will melt the hearts of kings and presidents. This is the age of grace and glory. Favour from the hand of God and man will be released in the earth, and the Church will be established as prince among the mountains.

A rising of a new type of missionary from the Church will begin to transform politics locally – strong, spiritual, biblically literate and fearless, the Church will march into the political arena ready to be a city on a hill.

MEDIA AND THE ARTS

The Church will become known again as a womb of creativity – art, music, words, media – Christian artists will be recognised as the source of immense creative expertise – as training schools in the arts arise in every city, nation and continent.

Film makers will send shockwaves throughout the world, explaining the fallen brokenness of man, melting the hardness of pride and releasing a longing for divine grace and healing. It is the arts, not politics, that will touch and reshape the morality of nations back to the image of God. Through stories, song, the retelling of divine history, the arts will capture the hearts of humanity and make many question the moral anarchy that has swept the world.

Stadiums will be used for church services again and again. The greatest auditoriums in the land will be filled. The arts and signs and wonders will run like streams, blending into a river of grace and glory that will capture the hearts of millions. Kings, presidents, the influencers of the world will weep in worship at the presence of God. Royalty will fall prostrate before the Fathers presence.

Revivals will accompany theatre companies. Anointed productions will be performed that lead the audience to overwhelming travailing of soul. Queues will go on endlessly as people long to be in God’s presence and hear the words once again. Audience members will convulse in their seats, cry out, rush the stage, run out to the streets, overcome by the Holy Spirit’s presence, in deep repentance. Some will be left overnight in the theatre, as the glory of God moves and crowds become immobile under the hand of God’s glory. In some areas this will become considered a normal response to the arts, such is the power and anointing of God at work.

Successful and renowned singers will begin to turn their concerts into evangelistic campaigns – even giving away bibles, taking altar calls and working with local churches. In some great auditoriums, multiple celebrities will give testimony and perform, with thousands giving their lives to Christ and leaving new churches planted.

Small radio stations will spring up across the earth broadcasting the Gospel, power and presence of God – telling the stories, releasing the testimonies of communities in regional areas. They will become the new pulpits of the airwaves. Thousands will be healed simply by listening, as the wisdom and wonder of God floods the airwaves. Some of these places will become so successful, larger stations will model themselves on the pattern of these glory stations.

GLORY INVADING EDUCATION

Schools, colleges and universities will be in upheaval at the moves of revival. Christian Unions will hold prayer meetings that fill up like assemblies. Outpourings of the Spirit will interrupt classes. Teachers will at times become preachers, as God’s presence moves so strongly in the classrooms. Many will fall to the floor overcome by God’s presence.

Great wars will be fought around the classrooms, as the enemy vies for the minds of the young – but the glory of God will prevail. Schools, colleges and universities will be swept up in visitations of glory so strong, that head teachers will be unable to finish prayers and speeches, and as they weep under the hand of God and the young people assembled begin to sing under the infilling of the Spirit.

“Missionary” will become a common recommendation for careers advice – the hunger for millions to carry God’s glory to the ends of the earth will grow, as the compulsion of love drives a new generation to invade every last corner of the earth with the Gospel.

GOD AND MEDICINE

God’s glory will empty some hospitals. Saints will go in, and prayer will fast become another normalised route to wellness. There will be many times when wards are emptied by the visit of a group of glory carriers.

But what is more remarkable is that it will become acceptable again for doctors to pray and lay hands on the sick. They will see the dead raised, intensive care patients radically healed, and many will come to faith in hospital.

In many places, prayer will become activity accepted, taught and recommended as a legitimate means of healing. Some medical universities will specialise in prayer for healing, helping to release an army of “divine doctors” able to walk in miracles and medicine.

Some hospitals will develop “miracle teams” who are trained and released to move around the hospitals praying, caring and comforting the sick. Churches will be set up in hospital wings.

GOD AND THE FAMILY

The make up of the family will be restored not by the laws of man, but by a movement of grace upon the broken hearts of humanity. The oil of God’s grace will flow upon the earth, and through encounter after encounter, the hearts of humanity, so hungry for approval and acceptance, will be restored to the Father’s Heart.

There will be outpost, after outpost, where a restoration of families will become the norm; divorce will drastically reduce, fatherlessness will fade, sexual confusion will give way to peace and holiness. In some places it will be the Church that become the “father and mother” of communities, bringing stability, nourishment, approval, discipline and tenderness. The Church will seem, in some places, to be almost a parental figure in the nation, rather than an irrelevant relic. Adoption and fostering ministries will explode across church communities, as God sets the lonely in healthy families.

GOD’S GLORY ON BUSINESSES AND FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS

Businessmen will be touched powerfully by glory, and become Generals of Commerce – releasing finances and resources into the global harvest. But not only will they resource ministries and churches, but their very businesses will become strongholds of the Kingdom, bringing societal transformation and change. Godly business men and women will be seen as spiritual elders in the cities, and many will run churches alongside, and even within, their businesses and staff. The commitment to transform a city or region will mean businesses become places of Kingdom rulership, to better advance the glory of God across an area.

The glory of God will disrupt the business day again and again! It will seem some leaders will have to trust that everything will get done, and profits will be made, as some will give up days to prayer and seeking God, allowing staff to be in God’s presence, rather than remaining on “the production line.” But these businesses will prosper greatly in God’s hand –bringing wealth and influence for the Kingdom. Habakkuk 2:14 states that, “The knowledge of the glory of the Lord is going to cover the earth as the waters cover the sea.”
